AeA Europe-EICTA-ESIA-JBCE-CECED-Orgalime Guidance on the Implementation of RoHS Directive

Published: 24 May 2004

Policies & Issues: Environment

Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment requires that electronic products put on the EU market after 1 July 2006 should not contain lead and other specified hazardous substances.  The RoHS directive also foresees that there should be maximum concentration values up to which the presence of these substances shall be tolerated.

Our industry has joined forces to provide guidance for the interpretation of the RoHS directive by issuing a joint RoHS industry guidance document to the Commission as well as member states representatives of the technical adaptation committee (TAC) in May 2004.
